Riverside Chiropractic and Physical Rehabilitation opened its doors in 1998 at 200 East Girard Ave. in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia. The office was opened with the intent of becoming the primary care rehabilitation center in Fishtown with a focus on non-operative spinal care. Over the years through education and training, the scope of the practice has widened and today, after ten years and over 3000 patients the office enjoys a brand new, modern office at 447 E. Girard Ave.
Additionally we have sought to enlarge the area we serve by opening satellite offices. In 2003 Dr. Bodoff developed a golf injury treatment program and performance enhancement training program, PowerGolf and opened a location in an indoor golf training facility in Springfield, Montgomery County. Subsequently PowerGolf was rolled into the Fishtown office and another satellite office was opened in Center City at 7th and Market Sts.
Presently both the Fishtown and Center City offices are up running and we are working on an integrative spinal care program involving orthopedists, physiatrists and other health care providers as well as a treatment program focusing on running related injuries and centered on videotaped gait analysis, dynamic foot strike analysis and functional examination.
The Riverside Mission
Riverside Chiropractic & Physical Rehabilitation will distinguish itself as a leader in redefining health care delivery and will be recognized for the passion of its people in providing quality, innovative care to the patients and community it serves.
The Riverside Difference
As you may know, chiropractors deal with neuromuscular and skeletal conditions. The more traditional chiropractic office usually involves only a spinal adjustment, perhaps a few words about stretching. A typical session with most chiropractors seldom lasts more than 10 to 15 minutes. When the visit is prompted because of the result of an injury or trauma, the traditional chiropractor may want to see you 2 to 3 times a week for the first month. Treatment plans can extend for six months or even longer. At this point, the traditional chiropractor will suggest monthly “maintainence” visits to keep the body in alignment.
The basic operating premise of chiropractic medicine is that a proper spinal alignment allows the body to “fix itself.”
At Riverside Chiropractic & Physical Rehabilitation, we are dramatically different. Our practice is geared to people who have injuries either from work, sports-related activity, accidents, or just daily activities. A typical visit lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. In addition to spinal manipulation, the session will include physio therapy/rehabilitation, stretching, and education where needed. At Riverside, you are a critical partner in the healing process and will be instructed in exercises and stretching needed to fully engage healing.
The initial evaluation at Riverside will guide the course of treatment. In general, most treatment plans can be accomplished in a series of 4 to 10 sessions. The course of treatment is evaluated at every session. Often, the treatment sessions will end because the body simply needs time to mend. Many patients find a reevaluation useful 3 to 6 months after the initial course of treatment.
In addition to “mending the body”, Riverside Chiropractic and Physical Rehabilitation has had considerable success designing sports-specific, weight loss, and work-hardening programs. These programs are particularly advantageous for individuals who are looking for the edge in performance.

David Bodoff, RN, DC
Dr.Bodoff has been a lifetime resident of Philadelphia, having been born here and being a resident most of his life. At work, Dr. Bodoff’s passion lies in helping people get back to their prior activity levels. He very much enjoys playing the part of detective to help uncover what he calls the “missing link”, that particular muscle or function that is aberrant and is the primary cause of much of a patients symptomatology. He also relishes designing specific, unique functional exercises or activities that will address the “missing link” and restore the patient’s lost function. He also is very active as a health care consultant working on issues of quality improvement, fraud detection and health care reform.
Outside of work, Dr. Bodoff can be seen running around the streets of Philadelphia or seeing movies, theater or live music. He enjoys living in the city and takes pleasure in “just walking out his door” and partaking in cultural activities or just hanging out in cafes in the city’s many intriguing neighborhoods. His other interests are photography, reading and food. He considers himself an accomplished cook.
